Reviews - What do customers think about Stagecraft 1: A Complete Guide to Backstage Work?
This book is out of date. Sep 25, 1999
This book is out of date and is an inaccurate reference for up to date stage work. The majority of diagrams are at least twenty years old and the techniques demonstrated in the book are no longer used in modern technical theater.
Very good book for high school but workbook needs revision. Sep 30, 1998
This book is thorough for secondary level. The corresponding workbook asks questions for which some answers cannot be found in the textbook. Together these books are a very good resource for a teacher who wants to write his or her own curriculum. These books could be used as they are but caveats must be expressed to studetns before the material is assigned as printed.
